Urban Taco Fabricator

You can complain about how Tacolicious on Valencia Street is ruining the flavor of the hood and gentrifying the fuck out of the place all you want, but just be grateful that we don’t have an Urban Taco Fabricator like they do in LA.

Package thief fought off with bear spray

It seems that a woman got a serial package thief arrested today, after setting a trap and spraying him with bear spray. “Professional food pornographer” Sonya Yu tweeted the ordeal as it unfolded. Select tweets appear below in chronological order.

Two local beers that taste like popular desserts

They’re both seasonal specialties from Cervecería de MateVeza. Brewer Jim says they usually don’t name a beer until after it’s done, which may account for the accuracy of the names — the names are very accurate. So if you like dulce de leche or Tootsie Rolls, go try these beers.

Here’s one now:

Oooh I wonder if these will be on hand at this weekend’s rock ‘n’ beer festival.

Friday plans

Check out these two things going on this Friday night:

First, our friends over at Muni Diaries are throwing a party for the opening of In Transit, a photo show celebrating 100 years since the first Muni car picked up its passengers, probably half an hour late.

The opening reception this Friday will also feature our new “Rename Your Muni Line” game where you can bestow a new nickname for your line (6-Parnasty, anybody?) on a humongous map, pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey style (no blindfolds, unless you’re so inclined).

Participating Photographers include Jeremy Brooks, Roi Brooks, Reynaldo Ruetas Cayetano Jr., Claudine Co, Mike Dillon,Brandon Duran, Adolfo Echeverry, Dave Glass (Dizzy Atmosphere), Daniel Hoherd, Troy Holden, Bob Horowitz, Bhautik Joshi, David Lytle, Calvina Nguyen, Julie Michelle Sparenberg, Moncrief Speaks, Doctor Popular, Sergio Ruiz, Hep Svadja, Jeremy Whiteman, Jon Wollenhaupt and yours truly (me).

You can also bring your own Muni photo to be included on the wall of commuter contributions and win a novelty slide viewer door prize.

Good to see they got my tweet.  Who says that hipsters get to have all the fun?  I hope they woke up that NIMBY jerk who got the city to ban DJs at the Attic.


Tits on your pillowcase

If you’re going to protest gentrification by writing ‘gentrification’ over and over all over somebody’s wall, at least try to spell it right
